If you’re doing research for a book you’re writing on, an essay, a report, chances are you might have to go back and forth between your sources from time to time. Combing through your search history is one way to look for stuff you were researching a couple of weeks ago, but this isn’t the most efficient way to go about it.
The good news is that if you’re a Chrome user, Google has recently announced a new Chrome feature called Journeys that should make it easier for you to look up your past searches along with all the relevant websites.
Now, Google can already recall some of your search terms in the past, but what Journeys does is it takes it one step further. For example, if you were recently searching for cryptocurrency and you pulled up some websites related to it, using the Journeys tool will let you search for that term and will also display all the relevant pages that you might have visited as well.
It can also show the sites you spent more time on, which might be an indicator that it might be more relevant, and can also make some suggestions based on your search. It’s quite a useful tool compared to trying to search through your history, especially if you can’t fully recall when exactly you made the search or which websites you might have found.
The feature should be in the process of being rolled out to users as we speak, so keep an eye out for it if you think it’s something you think you might find useful in the future.
